Winemaker's Notes

Many say Artadi is one of the most sought-after estates in Rioja and Pagos Viejos one of the most sought-after wines in the world. Decades of intense labor in the vineyards have given famed winemaker and owner Juan Carlos Lopez de Lacalle the experience and passion for making wines of true excellence. Containing fine aromas and an elegant mouth feel that is fruit-forward on the mid-palate, and supported by round tannins, Artadi's Pagos Viejos is the ideal representation of what an artisanal wine should taste like when carefully made from the old-vine Tempranillo that is grown in Rioja Alavesa. An experience to be enjoyed on special occasions, this wine is dark cherry red in color and is both elegant and aromatic. Containing intriguing aromas of dark chocolate, black minerals, cigar box and fresh coconut, this wine is unctuous and elegant with a very long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Good full ruby-red. Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of dark raspberry and licorice. Extremely ripe, rich and sweet, with a remarkably lush texture and early accessibility for Rioja. Here the new French oak gives necessary shape to this almost exotically sweet wine. Probably not for long keeping, but a major mouthful of wine."
